POST EDIT: I have a room at the Sheraton. I have discovered that the majority of All My Favorite People (TM) also have booked rooms at the Sheraton. Coupled with the fact that there will be no loud revelers at 4 am to disturb my meager sleep (I get very little at the Con, which is my own fault), I have decided this is in fact superior to my previously planned convention, and am happy with my situation. Thank everyone, for listening. You all rock.
I have been on hold with the Marriott for over an hour. In the time it took for me to log on to the reservations website and get out my credit card, the rooms were all booked. I figured if I got up at 7, called, then got on the phone at 8 like the lady told me, that would make a difference. So no rooms for Jennie and Happygoth at the Marriott for DragonCon. If you’ve got extras, we need one. Bad. Last person who did this got a steak dinner and a drink out of the deal (and ceosanna , you’re still completely awesome). I’m going to troll the lists for open rooms, but this is what we’ve got at the moment. Nada.
